I haven't listened to every song from every show yet but I've listened to a lot of it and saw a few live. These are some of the highlights for me:
BIG Shakedown, China Cat>Eyes is phenomenal, Jam>Dark Star>Strawberry Fields>St Stephen>11. Need I say more?
Scarlet>Jack Straw. Very nice Scarlet and this JS is HUGE, totally torn up.
Very good show. Good Crazy Fingers, a nice Foolish and then Come Together>Caution>New Potato Caboose>Nobody Girl>China Doll.
Patriot Center:
Cool show. Playin' opener and closer. The New Speedway set closer is sweet and then Help>Slip>Franks is hot and St Stephen>Revolution>11 is also.
Unbroken Chain->Morning Dew. Not a huge Unbroken Chain fan generally, but they really nail it. For my money, Furthur's best improv jamming has come during this song.
Alligator>Queen Jane Approximately is excellent. H2H>MS 1/2 Step>Get Back>He's Gone!
Cool jam between Bobby and Phil in Cassidy, sweet Casey Jones. A surfy Caution into a very spacey Dark Star.
One of the best shows of the tour, for me. Other than GMLS the whole first set is awesome. Smoking Cumberland, massive Foolish Heart and sweet rendition of Dear Prudence. Satisfaction is a rocking set closer. China>Wheel>Rider has gigantic Phil bombs and Unbroken Chain is inspired. A real sweet Comes A Time too.
Best night of the tour. Second set simply speaks for itself.
